Description

Beautiful route with a lot of altitude change for experienced hikers. Along the way are a few tricky parts. You start from El Molledo's church square (church square) and walk up slightly from there. On the back of the first mountain you go left down to walk along the mountain to the next saddle. There you go straight on the junction (and leave the yellow / white path). After a bit along the rocks you go down. Narrow, sometimes slippery and between the bushes. In this way, the gap slowly starts again, from high to low. You cross a few water channels and arrive at an abandoned factory. Unlike Masca, you do not walk on the bottom but always left or right of the creek. That's how it goes to the sea. Once you reach the ocean, take a break before you start the intense hike back. On the way back, hikers may choose to take an alternative route back to the car. You will reach a junction, and you can take a right for the alternative path. It will go downhill slightly before reaching El Molledo again.

Loved it! Great alternative to Masca. Harder and less advertised
